Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving 2008 was fantastic!! Here's a little play-by-play:

I was pleased that Olivia was actually into watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with me. Then, I realized that she was only watching until Miley Cyrus came on and then she was off to play.

Will made it home from rounds in plenty of time to get the turkey frier ready. He had some eager helpers again this year.

McIver helping to crush oyster crackers for the oyster pie (which turned out MUCH better this year than last).

Olivia took her turn, too.
Wendy & Jim, friends from church, their daughters, Julia & Liberty, and Jim's brother, Ian, joined us for Thanksgiving. They came last year as well so we all knew the drill. The kids played with every toy in the house, rode bikes and hung out while the grown-ups pretty much did the same thing, minus the toys and bikes.
The feast: fried turkey, sweet potatoe casserole, deviled eggs, oyster pie, asparagus, dressing, broccoli salad, cranberry relish and Will's delicious biscuits.

Liberty & McIver at the table - sadly, the kids weren't all that interested in the feast. McIver ate his weight in biscuits.

Wendy brought a delicious home-made pumpkin pie. I'm really sorry that there's not a picture because it was beautiful and delicious!
Nothing like sprinkles to fancy-up some ice cream.
